Frontier session

Urgent steps are needed to scale up alternative methods for producing and using materials within the built environment that align with low-emissions pathways. Looking to nature offers potentially underutilized materials and methods of design that could deliver sustainable built environments.

This interactive workshop will explore how bio-based materials and design could be scaled up for use in built environments and contribute more meaningfully to sustainable material palettes. The first session will focus on near-term opportunities followed by a more exploratory discussion on upcoming frontier developments.
